If you explored our website before landing on this blog, you have may noticed the term “general dentistry” on the menu, along with other services. “General dentistry” may sound bland, but it isn’t. At Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL, it’s your assurance that we can diagnose and treat your most essential issues, and ensure your overall dental health.
One of our watchwords is prevention. That’s why we start each of your appointments with an exam by one of our dental hygienists, who cleans and inspects your teeth and gums. Then it’s the dentist’s turn. In this way we make sure that your teeth, and the soft tissues of your mouth, are free of decay or disease.
A Wide Range of Services
If we find any issues, we are equipped to deal with most of them. If there is something beyond the scope of general dentistry we’ll give you an excellent referral. Examples of what we can do include:
- Repair damaged teeth
- Dental crowns
- Root canals
- Dental implants
- Oral cancer screenings
Your dental health is closely linked to your overall health. In fact, research has established links between common oral infections and conditions such as cardiovascular disease. That’s one of the best reasons to see us for regular checkups.
Too often, people put off going to the dentist. Some even wait until they suspect there is a problem. Needless to say, we do not recommend this approach. Prevention really is the best medicine.
At Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL, we want to see each of our patients for a cleaning and checkup every six months. Remember, your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and with our general dentistry, they can. Our services also include restorative dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today!
